A Raceway update

I was streaming away on my Raceway wrap, enjoying the 5 hours car trip because of all the knitting I got to do then.....

Recipe: 5 minute Bread

I bake bread.
No, I'm not a super organised person, nor do I have a big fancy kitchen or any fancy gadgets and I'm certainly no super-mum but I still find the 5 minutes each day to bake bread.

Yep, that's right, I said... 5 minutes.
How can I bake a fantastic loaf of bread with approx. 5 minutes preparation? ... see below for the super-duper easy recipe.

Introduce yourself...

Hi! I'm Rie (actually Marie but Rie is way better!), this is my blog and I'm happy you are here reading it....but who are you? Are you a crafter or do you just like craft?  Are you here in Australia or someplace else in the world?  Do you drink tea or are you a coffee addict?  Come on, tell me.

This is me...

A very proud... Taa daa!

Look at what I made - I made both the baby & the dress!
I love how this dress turned out, even if the pattern was confusing & only came in a small 0-3 month old size (she is 5mths old!)

Starting the Raceway

 
1,2, 3 go... and the race is on (well, at snails pace anyway) to do the #RacewayKAL!
Above is the yarn that I've chosen, what do you think of the colours, I'm not that great at choosing colours to go together!

Trying something new is always scary!

Picture this:  I squee with delight over a new pattern, I buy the yarn, get others enthused to join in & knitalong with me ... and I sit down & read the pattern and (almost) want to give up  ... at.the.very.first.row.

adding 52 to 365

I'm a sucker for crochet, yes.I.am.
So to add to my 'workload' (yeah, crochet is work!), I've decided to not only do 365 squares for the Mood blanket (as seen here) but to also do an additional 52 squares,1 for every week.

Is crap a bad word?!!

Hmm, thought I was clever didn't I. Thought I could get away without reading the pattern properly didn't I. 
NOPE.

A moody blanket

Ever wanted to track your moods throughout the year? I'm talking 365 days to track, sound good or bad?  Well, there is thing that started over on Instagram called the Crochet Mood Blanket 2014, it's where every day you crochet a square/piece for your blanket depending on your mood. Yep you heard me...Every.Single.Day. (or you could do 52 if you wanted, one for every week) Me, what did I choose..... 365 of course!
